Horizon Air Contracts Embraer For E175 Maintenance

Horizon Air, an Alaska Airlines subsidiary, selected Embraer for heavy maintenance.

Horizon Air signed a contract this week with Embraer Aircraft Maintenance Services to maintain its E175 fleet. The exclusive heavy maintenance contract covers the Alaska Air Group subsidiary’s 30 E-Jets, the first of which it introduced in 2017.

The companies did not disclose the value or duration of the “multi-year” contract.

Embraer Aircraft Maintenance Services, the OEM’s U.S. MRO company, will service Horizon’s E175s at its Nashville, Tennessee, facility, but it also has facilities in Macon, Georgia. Combined, the two locations have 15 hangar bays.

In addition to the E175s, Horizon Air operates 35 De Havilland Q400s.
